55th Cluster Reunion Alumni Weekend May 27-29, 2022

With Classes of 1965 & 1967

We are invited back to campus for Alumni Week this year (2022) and will be part of a "cohort" with the Classes of 1965 and 1967. It will be a chance for us to meet with friends from those classes, many of whom we haven't seen in over 55 years. During the weekend, we will have a designated lounge where we can hang out with them.

The Class of 1967 will be setting up discussion topics for the class meeting time on Saturday afternoon, and Peter Meyer ’65 will be leading a sing-along on Friday evening after dinner. Bob Levering will be showing clips from the movie that he is helping produce as a follow up to "Boys Who Said No." The new movie focuses on the impact of the Vietnam War protests.

50th Reunion, June 2016

And Now We've Celebrated
a Successful 55th Reunion 
With Five Zoom Events

Last year we enjoyed a Themed Social on May 25, 2021 to cap off our series of virtual gatherings during the Spring.

On Tuesday, May 25th, we had a "Themed Social" patterned a bit as if we were gathering in our dorm lounge at the college after dinner on Friday evening of Alumni Weekend. We started by entering breakout rooms of our choosing on selected topics with classmate facilitators. The selected topics included: 1) Medical ethics with Alex Capron, 2) Sustainability and Climate Changes with Terry Chapin & John Wehmiller with input from Rich Truitt,  3) Arts Activism with Lucinda Brown Kidder, and 4) Oral histories of Civil Rights Activism 1962-64 with Daniel Pope, Frank Cochran, Carl Abbott, and Tom Webb. After an hour, we returned to the main "lobby" and rappatours gave brief summaries of what was discussed and/or concluded in each breakout room.

Our reunion planning group has included Tom Riddell, Dare Thompson, Jill Grubb, John Wehmiller, Bob Levering, Jody Williams, and Tom Webb. The Alumni Office has provided Zoom support for activities and events, which have ranged from “academic” affairs such as John Morrow's discussion "A Warning from Weimar" on April 19 to social gatherings (cocktail hours, discussion of various topics), to artistic endeavors including FREEBO and Alice Howe's concert May 11. We also enjoyed a discussion of the documentary "The Boys Who Said No", which Bob Levering helped produce and Michael Ferber and Bob Eaton '65 appeared in.

Our class website (Swarthmore66.com) remains a good place to be in touch with each other via its private messaging when you don’t have a classmate’s email address. Check out also swarthmore.edu/alumni.

We want to remind you that our 50th Reunion Class Gift of the Class of 1966 Summer Internship and Mentorship Fund is still growing at just over $181,000 with a goal of reaching $250,000. You are encouraged to contribute to it along with your annual giving to the Swarthmore Fund.Each summer the Class of 1966 Fund pays Swarthmore students who mentor members of the Chester Children’s Chorus participating in the Swarthmore Science For Kids program. We will soon be updating you on CCC activities, some of which you can see in the video from its 25th anniversary gala from last summer. Great to know that our activism in Chester in the early 1960s can manifest today as support for the children in this community program.

Please contact me (508-336-4244) and others on our committee if you have any questions or suggestions. 

Good to see so may of you this spring.
